With restricted movement across the country due to the lockdown, there is an increased demand for specialised live streaming solutions across various sectors such as education, corporate, beauty and content creation. Catering to this demand, Sony India is the only brand to offer top notch quality live streaming solution with an array of Sony Alpha cameras and Professional camcorders to its customers. Equipped with trustworthy features and technology, Sony has to offer two Live Streaming solutions to the industries who are trying to connect with their audience remotely, first option is using the single camera and second option is using the multiple camera setup. This will not only help them to become self-reliant but also optimize their reach while producing excellent quality video content.
How to go Live with Sony using Single Camera When looking to live stream using a single camera, one can opt for any of Sony Alpha or Professional camcorders. The entire process of live streaming through these two are quite simple and explained very well below.
Live Streaming Solution using Sony Alpha Cameras
While most live streams use multi-camera configurations, there are numerous situations where only one camera can suffice. To start with, you can simply connect the Alpha camera to the computer using an USB cable. You also need to download the Sony free software Imaging Edge in your computer, which is an application that integrates the three functions of the Imaging Edge series (Remote, Viewer, and Edit) into one. As soon as you connect the alpha camera to the computer, the camera feed starts to reflect in the remote function of Imaging edge software.
The next step is to use the OBS studio. The OBS Studio is a free and open-source software which provides real-time source and device capture, scene composition, encoding, recording, and broadcasting. Next, you need to transfer the camera feed from Imaging edge software to the OBS studio software. Finally, all you need to do is copy the YouTube/Facebook stream key and paste it in the OBS studio software. Hit the start stream button and you are ready.
Events such as online learning modules, press conferences, electronic news gathering and internal corporate broadcast can be successfully conducted and captured with a simple one-camera set-up that uses a wireless camera to stream content. For this purpose, Sony India offers a wide range of Alpha cameras.
Live Streaming Solution using Sony Professional Camcorders
wireless professional camcorder setup is widely applicable when you are in a situation where you do not have your desktops/laptops. The solution is ideal when you are at distant from your studio or workstations.
You just need to connect your Sony professional camcorder with a WIFI or from any other internet source. Next, all you need is to copy the YouTube/Facebook stream key, paste it in the camcorder network settings and you are ready. HXR-NX80 and PXW-Z90 are two professional camcorders offered by Sony India for the wireless live streaming purpose.
How to go Live with Sony using Multiple Cameras
When looking to live stream using multiple cameras, the MCX-500 switcher is the right selection. It is an ideal choice for a wide range of live and recorded application ranging from pop concerts to weddings, educational seminars to corporate presentations, and meetings at houses of worship. Using the MCX-500, you can go beyond simply capturing an event to transforming it into an engaging and remarkable experience.
In the Multi camera live streaming setup, the switcher is designed to expand the operations for full control of a multi-camera shoot from different angles. There is no need to worry about swapping out inputs during the production – the MCX-500 features no less than 8 video inputs (plus dedicated Title input) to easily accommodate any small-to-medium sized production. It also has a unique feature to simultaneously live stream on Facebook as well as YouTube.
